All Cooke S7/i Primes have a true T2.0 aperture and cover 35/Super 35mm, full frame and beyond. The lenses are colour matched to the Anamorphic/i, S4/i, miniS4/i, 5/i and Pancro/i Classic lenses.

The S7/i have a common fixed front diameter of 110mm, with a focus drive gear of 140T x 0.8 metric module and an iris drive gear of 134T x 0.8. The lenses incorporate a nine-leaf linear iris assembly. The average weight of an S7/i lens is approximately 3.5kg.Mounts are Cooke Hardened PL with /i Technology contacts.

The lenses are available from June 2017.
